Former Trump attorney Michael Cohen to accuse U.S. president of criminal conduct in Congressional hearing

Washington, February 26 (RHC)-- Donald Trump's former personal lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen is set to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee in a closed hearing. Reports say that Cohen may directly accuse Trump of criminal conduct.

Senators are expected to ask about plans to develop a Trump Tower in Moscow and whether Trump told him to lie to Congress. Cohen pleaded guilty to lying to the panel in 2017. He is scheduled to begin a 3-year prison term in May for lying to Congress and tax evasion, bank fraud and campaign finance violations.

On Wednesday, Cohen will appear before the House Oversight Committee in his only open congressional testimony this week. On Thursday, he will testify behind closed doors before members of the House Intelligence Committee.
